Garlic, onions, soy sauce and onion soup mix flavor the tender beef in these savory hot sandwiches served with a tasty, rich broth for dipping. The seasoned beef makes delicious cold sandwiches, too. —Marilyn Brown, West Union, Iowa

Ingredients

  • 1 beef rump roast or bottom round roast (4 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 large sweet onions, cut into 1/4-inch slices
